Best Leg Exercises for Women
Ball Leg Lifts
Lie with your hips across a stability ball. Use your arms to prop yourself up. This is your start position. Squeeze your glutes as you lift your legs up off the floor as far as you can. Lower your legs back down to the start position to complete one rep.
Lie with your back on the floor with your feet on a stability ball. Keeping your core tight, lift your hips up off the floor. This is your start position. Use your legs to roll the ball in towards your butt as far as you can. Next, reverse the movement, rolling the ball back to the start position to complete one rep.
Start on all fours, with your hands stacked directly under your shoulders and your knees directly under your hips. This is your start position. Keep your leg bent, push a flexed foot up towards the ceiling as far as you can. Squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement. Your back should remain perfectly still in a neutral spine with your hips square to the floor. Reverse the movement and return just short of the start position to complete one rep. Complete the same number of reps with both legs to complete one set.
Ballet Leg Lifts
Stand with one foot firmly planted on the ground. Point your other leg’s toe down towards the ground, then turn the knee out to the side as far as you comfortably can. Next, lift your turned out leg backward. This is your start position. To begin the exercise, pulse your leg up and down, quickly racking up reps. You should feel your outer thigh/hip/booty start to burn. When you’re done, switch legs and do the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one set.
Lie on your back with your feet planted flat on the floor shoulder width apart. Rest dumbbells (or barbell) across your hips. This is your start position. Squeeze your abs and glutes, then lift your butt up and off the floor until your body forms a straight line. Lower back down to the start position to complete one rep.
Get on your hands and knees. Extend one leg out to the side with your toe pointed. This is your start position. Exhale and slowly lift your leg up and across your body towards the opposite side. Inhale and return to the start position to complete one rep. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn do 5 more then stop. Complete the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one set. Tip: Keep your hips square and even during the movement.
Stand holding a pair of dumbbells, with your feet shoulder width apart. This is your start position. Cross one leg back behind you as you lower down into a curtsey. Push up to the start position then repeat the curtsey on the opposite side. Do the same number of reps with both legs to complete one set.
Stand holding dumbbells (or barbell). Your feet should be slightly narrower than shoulder-width apart. This is your start position. Bend at the waist lowering your chest towards the floor, while keeping your back neutral. Keep your legs straight but not locked. Your butt will naturally go backward. Don’t arch or round your back. Lower down as far as you can while keeping the weights in close to your legs. Exhale and lift your chest back up to the start position to complete one rep.
Start in an all-fours position with your wrists and knee stacked under your shoulders and hips. Your back should be parallel to the ground, not arched or bowed downward. Keeping your hips square to the floor, raise one knee up and out to the side, until your inner thigh is parallel to the ground. Hold for a count then return to the start position to complete one rep. Complete the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one set.
